I remember getting angry and boycotting the comic book industry when the cover price went up to astronomical figure of 20 cents. Who'd have thought it would make the youngest consumer advocate? And about the same time I remember my disappointment when I sent in my Crush bottle caps and waiting for a month only to get a letter from them saying they weren't taking them anymore. Nothing worse than being a disillusioned 10-year-old! Of course, things are different now, the cover price for a comic book being $3.99 and some bottle caps now offer a free music download.

All of my comic books are gone now, but when I did have a collection it was quite huge, mostly from the late 50s to early or mid 60s. Then comics became "relevant" around 1966 or 67, and I lost all interest. All I have now are a few hardcover reprints of some early Marvel comics.

Too bad you don't still have them. Most comics from that time are now pretty valuable. I've somehow managed to keep a lot of what I bought as a kid. They will be sold by my wife when I croak.

My Parents remember when we changed from traditional denominations to decimalisation in 1971 here in jolly old England. They hated it because half a penny was now worth 0.208p, so they got less with their pocket money!
